foil details

8 posts in this topic

I have been wanting to try this for some time so I got the tools together and gave it a shot. The bait is basswood sealed and foiled as normal. The scale pattern is an embossing tool from Wesco taxidermy and I just realized the scales might be on backward. Oh well it is the first try. The other details are made using leather tools; a scalloped border tool and a background veiner. Looks a lot like gills and fins to me.

Hope you like it. I like having details without all the carving.

They look really good, will look even better after you

get them facing the right direction.

May have to try that myself.

Been dabbling into this foiling over the winter. Then using a tissued image form the internet to cover the foil. I'm going to try the foils' other, duller side. All this after I bought myself an airbrush and compressor last October. Just bought a boat so i need to finnish these so i can test them. I need to build a glider as I don't feel the lures I own are true gliders. They can walk-da-dog but they have a lip too. Good looking lure and videos. I emboss over a netting material. What did you use to get those rounded scales? Very realistic. Bruce.

Maybe injured shad swim backwards...but then, I sometimes paint rogues upside down on purpose so maybe I'm a bad one to judge :wink:

Looks good. Don't fret Finlander...you will still need the airbrush for backs, bellies, shading, tinting the clearcoat over the foil, etc.
